The past couple months....

Ok, so I'm a little slow on the uptake.  Oh well.  I'm sure this will be about the speed of getting things posted on here. 
It's been a busy couple months.  Thanksgiving with Patrick's parents...  We spent almost a whole 5 days with them.  We had a great time, but as with all trips I was happy to be back home afterwards.  :)
Then the whole month of December is all about Christmas.  We've had a good month.  We finally went to see Santa the Tuesday before Christmas day.  Ethan still wasn't sure what to think of the big man, but at least he didn't freak out.  Then Christmas morning here at the house, the rest of the day spent at my parents, and then the weekend with Patrick's parents.
We were fine up until Christmas night.  Patrick and Ethan were both kind of sniffly.  Then it all fell apart Saturday night when Ethan broke out in hives, was over heated, and scared the heck out of us!!!  Well he didn't sleep well that night, took a 3 hour nap Sunday, and didn't sleep well Sunday night or Monday night.  Trip to the doctor on Tuesday revealed he has a double ear infection and a yucky cold to boot.  So now he's taking antibiotics.  Hopefully in two weeks it'll be cleared up.  At which point they'll probably tell us that they want to get tubes in his ears.  Needless to say, I'm not real happy at that prospect.  :(
Other than the being sick right now, Christmas itself was exceptional!!  Love, laughter, and family!  Not much better than that!!!
And then day after tomorrow, it's a brand new year!  Where in the world did 2009 go?  Guess that's how it goes.  Anyway, here's wishing everyone a safe, healthy, prosperous, and Happy New Year!!!!
